Joan Elizabeth Rose (Mosher-Printz), of Bridgewater, passed away Wednesday, November 29, 2017, at her home. Joan was born December 2, 1943, in Upper Kingsburg, Nova Scotia. Daughter of the late Wilson Mosher and Verna Peeler (Wile-Mosher). Joan was a retired home care worker with Lunenburg Home Support. She spent a lot of time with her family and friends who she was most proud of. She was always on the go, if she wasn’t busy off to one of her card games or lunches, you’d find her on Facebook talking and seeing what everyone was up to. She was a social butterfly with a love for life. She was always smiling and making people laugh with her funny sense of humor. She was the matriarch of our family. She touched so many hearts and lives. She will be greatly missed by so many.
